Re: For 5.7L HEMI: what octane rating of gas do you use?

I run 89 Octane in my 5.7l Overland. I also noticed a marginal improvement in fuel economy over multiple fill ups without changing driving habits. I estimate I'm getting another 1 to 1.5 mpg on the...

Re: Synthetic Oil and Your Warranty - Dealer Nonsense

I've also heard good things about East Hills. I take my JGC to the Bayside dealership and I like them a lot overall. They've always been courteous, prompt, and professional. This is the first...

Re: new here

Regarding electrical issues: Chrysler knows about the "Christmas Tree" dash. It's fixed. They have frequent software upgrades, but they are far less frequent and inconvenient than when my computer...

Synthetic Oil and Your Warranty - Dealer Nonsense

Now topping the list of ridiculous things that I've heard from the Chrysler service department: Since Chrysler doesn't recommend the use of synthetic oil with the 5.7l engine, if you have an engine...

Re: Choice between Trailhawk and Hemi Jeep GC

The best car buying advice I ever got was to, "go with the cubes." The Hemi won't let you down. The 5.7 is tested and true. Take the cubes!

Re: 2015 Overland Dashboard

This surprises me. I'm pretty particular and I don't have any complaints about my leather dash. Just this afternoon, I was sitting in a later 2014 JGC in the showroom and I thought that the leather...

Re: Surpisingly Stable Overland

I am definitely impressed with the road handling characteristics of my JGC. It is much more "nimble" than I expected it to be, but let's not get carried away. If you take your JGC to the track then...

Re: Fuel door

I had the same problem on my new 2014 JGC. You have two options. Either get a stick long enough to push the button while you are pulling on the door, or take it to the dealership to fix your door...

Re: Burning oil

I'm at 16,000 miles. I'm burning a quart every 4,000 miles. I do a lot of short trips where my engine doesn't reach it's proper operating temperature so I figure this is normal. When I asked the...

Re: fuel door

Re: Ringing From Under Dash

So that bracket goes in the garbage and nothing replaces it? There's no "new and improved" bracket?

Re: 2014 V8 is weak?

How's this for an aggressive response: thanks for stopping by, now walk your happy ass back the BMW dealership and handle your business. You're not ready for a new GJC. Goodbye.

Re: "Christmas Tree" Frustration - Dealer Service

I had a 2001.5. It was stage 3 so the turbos were solid.
After that I had a 2005.5 with the 4.2 V8 and some mild mods. The engine and transmission were bulletproof. I replCed both wTerpuswith...

Re: "Christmas Tree" Frustration - Dealer Service

Now I'm fired up! As of Saturday (4 days after I dropped it off) they still hadn't looked at my Jeep. Today, I'm pretty sure that their loaner car will get a parking ticket at the train station. I...

Re: New flowmaster cat back

They say interior noise is moderate. I think it sounds weird on a JGC altogether. I like a nice soft V8 grumble, but it should be more sedate. IMO this is too much unless you're driving an SRT. Then...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited Electronics Problem

Re: Considering '14 Jeep Questions About Engines
